Memorial of the Grieving Mother

Over the past few days I have been at a workshop in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. This was my first time in this country. At the end of our workshop, some of our group had the chance to explore the old city. I will have some photos of that trip to post. But before I show those, I have two from the Grieving Mother memorial in central Tashkent's Independence Square.

The memorial honors 400,000 Uzbeks who died in World War II. The niche in the second photo contains the names of those who died. The man above was in quite reflection in front of the names.
